What are your general comments?

"The day began with an inviting greeting by the Student Affairs director. After intial intros., the interviewers and two student ambassadors sat for continental breakfast and addressed any ?'s that we might have had. During this time, the smiling faces addressed the particular highlights of the school. Afterwards, around 11 am, the first interview took place. Intermittently throughout the day, several students popped in to the "fish bowl" as they liked to refer to it and spoke of their experiences thus far. Besides that, the interview was very friendly and the day ended early for some and later for others depending on when you interviewed and toured the campus." Report Response
